Nevis is a 36 sq mile island with a population of about 12,000. It is the other half of the Federation of St Kitts & Nevis and lies 2 miles south of St Kitts. English is the language and EC the currency although USD is good as gold.

Alexander Hamilton was born on Nevis around 1755 and Frances Nisbet married Captain (later Admiral) Horatio Nelson here in 1787.

Nevis turned out to be far more interesting then I remembered from past visits. In 2003 the island was covered in grey ash from Montserrat. The first pictures are from an island tour we took that date.

While at anchor large sea turtles surrounded the ship making frequent visits to the surface.

The first stop (Saggita first shakedown Dec 2012) was in town. Some passengers were off on what some referred to as the "Bataan Death March" to the top of the dormant volcano 3232 ft above sea level. The last pictures show what remained of the muddy bloody survivors.

After lunch Saggita moved to the beach for "Killer Bees" and monkey business.
